Boehner: With Housing Proposal, Republicans Continue Offering Better Solutions

House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) today issued the following statement after Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) and Members of the House GOP’s Economic Recovery Solutions Group announced Republicans’ plan for revitalizing the housing market:

“While some continue to repeat the falsehood that Republicans are not offering alternatives to the President’s plans that spend, tax, and borrow too much, Republicans are proving that we are the party of better solutions. This year, we have offered better solutions on the economy, jobs, the budget, college and retirement savings, and now housing. Rep. Cantor and his colleagues on the Economic Recovery Solutions Group have crafted a proposal to revitalize our housing market without rewarding speculators, scam artists, and those who knowingly made bad decisions. I hope the Administration and Democratic leaders in Congress finally abandon their go-it-alone approach and give this proposal and all of our Republican solutions the consideration they deserve.”

NOTE: Earlier this year, Boehner tapped Cantor to head the House GOP’s Economic Recovery Solutions Group. Other Members of the group include Republican Conference Chairman Mike Pence, (R-IN), Republican Policy Committee Chairman Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI), Republican Chief Deputy Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Rules Committee Ranking Member David Dreier (R-CA), Financial Services Committee Ranking Member Spencer Bachus (R-AL), Rep. Judy Biggert (R-IL), Rep. Mike Castle (R-DE), Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX), and Rep. Chris Lee (R-NY).
